Justin Case: School, Drool, and Other Daily Disasters
by Rachel Vail
AR book level: 5.2
Justin is a 3rd grader. His name isn't really Justin Case, but he got that nickname doing a project where he kept saying "Just in case." One of the school bullies said maybe that's how he got his name and ever since everyone has been calling him Justin Case. The book is written in the form of Justin's journal. There is an entry every day during the school year. In the book, Justin talks about what happens at school, home, and with his family.
I liked the book because it was super duper funny and the beginning of the book he is a worrier, but towards the end he gets more brave and doesn't worry as much. It was easy to read as there were breaks at the end of each day's journal entry. I thought that his family was funny especially his little sister who wrote a poem about dog poop that she read to the school.
